September Sermon Series: Faith@Home
Each of us is called to live out our faith as part of a family, regardless of what our particular family configuration looks like. We live out our faith at home by ourselves, or with children, spouses, partners, grandchildren, or friends who have become our chosen family. The series, therefore, is for singles, empty nesters, families with young children, families with teenagers, college students, married couples with no children and retirees. Faith@Home is for everyone!
We will explore the four functions of home and the way in which they impact our faith - Home as Seminary, Home as Trauma Center, Home as Filling Station, and Home as Safe Place.
Learn more about the series and see what's coming up for each week.

Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Faith@Home: The Home as Seminary. Each service in the four-part series focuses on different ways in which the home can serve as a seminary - providing spiritual training that no other institution can match. Through Scripture, sermon and song, these services remind us that the home has the opportunity to make a deeper and longer-lasting spiritual impression on us than almost any other organization in the world.
We will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion
Psalm 30; Deuteronomy 6:1-9; Ephesians 6:1-4; Luke 2:42-52
Pray for our world
Ecumenical Prayer Cycle): Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia

The Mary Carter Barrow
You are invited to visit our
Garden courtyard, which was rededicated in November 2013. This
sacred space underwent a
four-year renovation to transform
a deteriorating and
underutilized space into a
beautiful, tranquil garden
for prayer, reflection, and
meditation; an incredible
outdoor space for social
activities; and a sacred
space for interments.
Learn more about our Garden and see photos of this beautiful sacred space.
